Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is the main protagonist for the DreamWorks films How to Train Your Dragon and How to Train Your Dragon 2. In the initial release of the School of Dragons, Hiccup appeared as he did in the first How to Train Your Dragon film; however, following the 2014 update, he and all the other characters appeared as they did in the second film. His dragon is Toothless, a Night Fury.
From the School of Dragons Game Guide: (pre-update)
- "Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, more commonly referred to as ‘Hiccup,’ is the son of the Viking chief, Stoick the Vast. He is thin and somewhat and does not fit the common characteristics of the average Viking boys his age. Because of this, Hiccup struggles to identify with the traditional Viking culture, which at times puts him at odds with his father and other members of their Viking clan.
- "As the assistant of the local blacksmith, Gobber, Hiccup excels in other avenues and exhibits a great sense of inventiveness, creativity, and smarts. What Hiccup lacks in physical strength while in Viking training, he makes up for by being able to interact with dragons, which his clan had been traditionally trained to kill.
- "Due to his deep desire to excel as a true Viking, Hiccup often exhibits a strong sense of determination and will go above and beyond what is expected of him, which becomes essential to his role in creating peace between the dragons and the Vikings. It is his steadfast nature that brings him to shoot down the dragon on the night who ultimately becomes his future companion, Toothless.
- "Through his immediate bond with Toothless, Hiccup’s new found knowledge of dragons allows him to quickly ride to the top of his class in dragon training. After earning the praise of Gobber, his classmates, and most importantly his father, Hiccup is eventually chosen by Gothi to fight the Monstrous Nightmare.
- "Not wanting to kill the dragon, Hiccup is quickly disowned by his father and ridiculed by the villagers as he tries to explain that the dragons are not as dangerous as they all might think. However, Hiccup is later able to prove everyone wrong during the battle against the Red Death when he gathers his fellow Viking students for training. Hiccup and Toothless ultimately defeat the dragon that had been terrorizing the Vikings’ village for a long time. This battle allowed the Vikings to witness the courage and bravery of Hiccup and enter the new world forged by Hiccup and his friendship with dragons."

In the GameEdit
In the game, Hiccup is the one who finds the location that would later become the School of Dragons. During the "New Student" quest, he helps the player get to the School of Dragons by offering to fly them on Toothless. After that, he continues to help the player by giving hints on missions and assigning them quests. He is also the one who discovered the type of fish that nullify a dragon's shot limits, allowing the player's dragon to play Fireball Frenzy.
Hiccup can be found near the Flight Club at the Training Grounds area, in front of his house on Berk, or on the School campus (the direct location being dependent on what quests you have accept). Toothless can be found standing next to Hiccup at all three locations. Following the completion of the quest "Glass as a Spectrum", he can also be found at the highest point of the Lookout by the telescope.
